I made a few good decisions early on with my purchases of audio equipment. These handsome loudspeakers are definitely one of those. In the early 80’s, JBL was fond of repackaging their series of true studio monitors for the listener at home.
Great video of Peggy Lee performing her classic hit, Fever. Check out drummer Jack Sperling and his hand drumming. It doesn’t get cooler than that! As a former drummer, I could never figure out why this is not done more often. The dynamics that Jack gets using his hands is fantastic. Not to mention that he looks like he is having way too much fun…..
How and when did this American rural music get high jacked and turned into the pop drivel it is today? What happened to the likes of Johnny Cash, Merle Haggard, Waylon Jennings, Loretta Lynn, Hank Williams, George Strait , Dolly Parton, Kris Kristofferson, Lee Ann Womack, Marty Stuart, Randy Travis…..what the heck happened people?
